For Marketplace, Friday, February 25, 2011

In anticipation of the Oscars taking place in Los Angeles this weekend, we heard a story on how movie trailers have changed since legendary trailer voiceover artist Don La Fontaine died a few years ago. Making a risky film doesn't just require a lot of stuntmen -- it requires some good insurance too. We also heard stories on the slow growth of U.S. GDP, the latest in the Middle East, and how Google is changing its algorithm again. And there was the Weekly Wrap, and the latest Small Talk segment for the weekend. Here are the songs we played:

  • We Here - Illa JBuy
  • Chain Reaction - Cloud CultBuy
  • No Satisfaction - Black MountainBuy
  • R U Listening? - Illa JBuy
  • World in My Eyes - Depeche ModeBuy
